Digitized from a shellac record, at 78 revolutions per minute. Four stylii were used to transfer this record.They are 3.8 mil truncated conical, 2.3 mil truncated conical, 2.8 mil truncated conical, 3.3 mil truncated conical. These were recorded flat and then also equalized with Turnover: 500.0.
The preferred version suggested by an audio engineer at George Blood, L.P. is the equalized version recorded with the 2.8 mil truncated conical stylus, and has been copied to have the more friendly filename.

The music and imagination
Imagine getting your hands on a 1931 recording for less than premium price ten years after its original issue date, when it was scarce. That's what the Hot Record Society was formed to do for aficionados, and it was a noble effort. A 50-year buyer and fan of Classic Jazz here, and I appreciate the upload, and even the reminder there were such efforts, early on, for hardcore fans.

No Possible use
Wow are you wrong. Although this might not be for the avid "collector" it sure is useful and enjoyable for us listeners. Thanks for uploading!
All issues by this company are reissues of discs from other companies. Sugar Foot Stomp was recorded on April 29 1931 in New York City. Jazz collectors always like to know the take number also (there were at least two takes of this number). In my opinion this transfer is of no possible use, since it is just a dub of famous and widely reissued recording.

Connie's Inn started out as a deli. When Prohibition began, adding a speakeasy let the business expand. Connie's was as popular as the Cotton Club, both in Harlem where white people could go and see black musicians play. Connie's was a little more dangerous, with more gang activity than other places. Louis Armstrong was allegedly held at gunpoint while a gangster convinced him to leave Chicago and go perform at Connie's in New York. Before 'Sugarfoot Stomp' was recorded, the same tune under the title 'Dippermouth Blues' was recorded by King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band. Joe 'King' Oliver was tagged as the composer, but some argue that it was actually Louis Armstrong's tune. Maybe that's why Fletcher Henderson's orchestra recorded it while he was playing with them. Here's Dippermouth Blues on the other side of this record, see if you can hear the similarities in the songs. https://archive.org/details/78_dipper-mouth-blues_joe-oliver-armstrong-oliver-louis-armstrong-johnny-dodds-honore_gbia0001054b [date source http://www.78discography.com/HRS.htm]
